Congratulations, this is a great subject for research. It
would be more impressive and could be taken seriously if
your sample size was at least 100 babies and moms. Also, if
your control babies were dressed and held by their mothers
compared to the skin-to-skin babies who were held. Please do
a further randomised controlled trial with a large number of
babies. Thank you and good luck with the next.
I am unimpressd with Larry Gray, Lisa Watt, and Elliott M. Blass'
study of newborns. Instead of comparing swaddled, cribbed infants with
infants held skin-to-skin to their mothers, the study should have compared
clothed babies that were held to skin-to-skin held babies. Do you see?
This study is not properly controlled. I can't believe it even received
funding. Go back to Statistics 101 please.
Thank you for your interest in spreading the word on Pediatrics.
